Wow, Hope. These are so wonderful! Your topstitching is gorgeous and I'm mouth-agape over your freehand embroidery. Very impressive. I love the coordinating fabric you used for the facing and really love that you incorporated that into the embroidered motif. I'll definitely be copying this idea. I'm wearing a pair of KS overalls today (spring cleaning!), so if you have specific questions about how a side placket is done, PM me--I'll try to walk you through it.

Thank you for all the encouraging remarks! I loved making these because I could focus on construction and details without having to worry about fit.

They look great. You did a wonderful job. I thought the buckles looked okay. They probably look cheap to you because the buttons are so nice. :) I think you should greduate yourself to Intermediate from Advanced Beginner!

freehand embroidery? Wow, I was just checking your bio to see what kind of embroidery machine you used! It looks great! All that topstitching looks fabulous, too!

Your topstitching and embroidery are so perfect, plus the hardware really makes them look so cute! What a wonderful gift, I hope the new mom appreciates all your work.

Wow, so impressive with all that detail on such a small garment! I love the facing fabric.

Wow, so impressive with all that detail on such a small garment! I love the facing fabric, and I can't believe you did that embroidery free-hand - it looks great.

So cute, and what a wonderful job you did! I also believe the facing should cover the bib seam. Also, instead of a label at the inside of the upper back, a small piece of the cotton print that you used for facing would be cute appliqued to the outside upper back. I really like the embroidery!
